Aerosmith, the famous rock band, announced their final tour to play a last sayonara to the lovely fans who have supported them through the years. The tickets went on sale on May 5, and fans were delighted to see the numerous concerts all over North America.
However, the constant singing and performances are bound to take a toll on the band, especially the lead singer, Steven Tyler. Certain types of singing are especially harsh on the voice, and Steven’s all-out performances are incredibly draining.
So, in a recent post, Tyler confirmed what fans feared the most: An injury to his vocal cord.
Steven Tyler has paused and rescheduled his Aerosmith Farewell Tour after injuring his vocal cords. The singer posted the announcement on Instagram, saying that the injury led to subsequent bleeding. Tyler has been strictly instructed by the doctor not to sing for at least a month.
The lead singer has not yet revealed how his vocal cords were injured; however, the new development will impact the final tour of the rock band, and it is common for fans to feel disappointed.
Yes, six upcoming concerts from the Aerosmith Farewell Tour have been postponed due to a vocal cord injury suffered by Steven Tyler, the lead singer of the rock band. The band was expected to perform in Detroit, Chicago, Washington DC, Toronto, Raleigh, and Cleveland, but the dates have been pushed back to 2024.

Not to worry, as the Aerosmith has promised that tickets will remain valid for when the show is held next. So, if you have already bought tickets, they will be honored on the rescheduled dates.
In fact, refunds will also be available for those who might be unavailable to attend the concerts. Fans who have questions regarding their refunds are asked to refer back to their points of purchase.
Initially, the band’s final tour began on September 2, 2023, and was set to conclude in January 2024. The tour would have consisted of around 40 concerts circling North America. However, due to the unexpected injury, the tour will now end a month later in February.
Did Tyler Steven Get a Vocal Cord Surgery?
This isn’t the first time Steven Tyler has injured his vocal cords. During a 2006 concert, Tyler ruptured a blood vessel in his vocal cord while hitting a high note. His voice cut out completely, and all remaining shows were canceled to let the singer recover. Tyler then received surgery and total bed rest before he could perform again.
According to media outlets, “Years of athletic vocal performance had led to the development of abnormal blood vessels that were predisposed to further injury.”
Tyler may have been irritated by his previous injury, which has flared once again due to the continuous singing at concerts.
Let’s hope that the singer gets plenty of rest and lets his vocal cords heal. Meanwhile, comment below your favorite Aerosmith songs and the best Steven Tyler high notes.
